Quick-Thoughts: David Fincher’s The Game (1997)

David Fincher Binge Part I of VII David Fincher’s The Game is essentially a modern, updated version of Dickens’ classic A Christmas Carol but instead of having three ghosts visit the Scrooge-like character, it’s this gimmick of a game that leaches into the life of a financially wealthy egotist. Even though I found the focal […]

Quick-Thoughts: Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight (2015)

Quick-Thoughts: Edgar Wright’s The World’s End (2013)

Edgar Wright Marathon Part IV of V, 2nd Viewing I love Simon Pegg’s character in The World’s End, and the actor has even mentioned that it’s his favorite out of all his personas in the trilogy. Dressed in all black, stuck in the past, and has only the saddening idea of “closure” to push him […]

My Polarizing Opinion of Edgar Wright’s Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010)

Edgar Wright Marathon Part III of V, 2nd Viewing  ADHD: The Movie.  Scott Pilgrim vs. the World is a movie I genuinely wish I could fall head over heels with. For one: Edgar Wright is a G. For two: I am a fan of extroverted stylization. To me, the visual exclusivity of film is what […]

Quick-Thoughts: Quentin Tarantino’s Death Proof (2007)

Tarantino Marathon Part VI of IX, 2nd Viewing  So, tell me again why Rob Zombie didn’t make Werewolf Women of the SS? Death Proof: the ultimate “watching movies in the theater on a film projector is the ONLY real way to watch movies” starter-pack. Observe: there’s tons of intentional film grain (lines, dots, and marks), […]

Quick-Thoughts: Edgar Wright’s Hot Fuzz (2007)

Edgar Wright Marathon Part II of V, 2nd Viewing Back on the Cornetto trilogy!  Just from the opening ten minutes alone, you can already tell that Hot Fuzz is going to have around double the laughs and double the amount of intricately though-out pizazz than Shaun of the Dead had. It’s no kidding that Edgar […]

Quick-Thoughts: Edgar Wright’s Shaun of the Dead (2004)

Edgar Wright Marathon Part I of V, 2nd Viewing Innocent disclaimer: I haven’t sat down to watch any of the Cornetto movies since I was a wee movie fanatic back in middle school, so yeah, this rewatch has taken quite the time to arrive! It really took a worldwide quarantine to get me to rewatch […]
